Rose Pruning Christchurch

Rose Pruning ChristchurchSilver Tussock offers an excellent rose pruning service in Christchurch. The aim of rose pruning is to improve plant strength, flowering and health. Pruning needs to be done regularly in order to encourage flowering for many years.

Some rose pruning hints:

  • Main rose pruning should take place between July and early August
  • It takes 3 hours for a pruning wound to seal properly
  • Avoid pruning in wet, moist or humid conditions as water can increase the risk of infection in pruning wounds

To promote healing and prevent diseases from forming, Silver Tussock sprays roses with oil and copper after pruning.
